WINNERS SELECTED, 3/23/16
And our winners are … Sara Kitchen, Nicole, Ally, Maryellen Benton, and Rebecca (see winners’ post here).
I have a new obsession. It’s one of those late-night, I-finally-put-my-kids-to-bed kind of indulgences. And it’s no surprise that it’s chocolate. Well, hear me out … the chocolate I speak of is the finest I’ve tasted and … not all that bad for you. Let me back up. Who doesn’t love, love, love cookies? The problem is, I don’t exactly have time to bake every day, or sometimes every week for that matter, which is probably a good thing. But some nights, a bit of chocolaty, salty, crunchy, gooey goodness is downright necessary after a long day. So here’s my solution:
A good book and a rice cake smothered in “almond-spread-w/cocoa” is “cookie” perfection. So good, I don’t even care that I seem to be sharing my bed on occasion with a few crumby characters.
In addition, I’m helping Endangered Species (ESC) do some pretty awesome things because they give 10% of their net profits to species and habitat conservation. That equals over $1,200,000 in the last three years! From protecting elephants and their ivory to bees and their pollination habitats, ESC is working hard. So with every rice cake (or whatever suits your fancy), smothered in chocolate spread, you’re helping protect our planet. It’s a win-win (sin-win?).
I’d love to share a jar of Endangered Species’ spread with you (well, not share exactly—I haven’t opened them, I promise!). So, tell me why you love chocolate or our planet or both in the comments below and I’ll put your name in a hat and draw a few lucky winners.
